Summertime is a terrific opportunity for kids to have fun in the great outdoors, make new friends, and build confidence in trying new things. There are a handful of camps across the country that host overnight camps designed with deaf/hard of hearing children in mind. Applications for summer generally become available around February. Scholarships are available to campers who need financial assistance. The closest two to the Twin Cities are:
